In the February 2011 issue of Linux Journal Kyle Rankin wrote an article called Status Messages in Screen. I’ve been using screen for years but never thought much about what it could do beside keep my shell open on a remote server. Well this article opened my eyes. I quickly dug in and start working on my .screenrc on my macbook. I was able to write a couple of applescripts to pull inbox counts from entourage and mail.app. Cool stuff i look forward to seeing what other useful info I can get in there since i do like to work at the cli a lot. Thanks Kyle.
